Paul Gauguin Cruises sets 21 family voyages in 2023-24

Fun activities aboard and ashore showcase the South Pacific's natural wonders and cultures
Paul Gauguin Cruises' Moana Explorer Program for kids and their families will be offered on 21 summer and holiday sailings in 2023 and 2024.

Tailored to children ages 7 to 15, the complimentary program is available in collaboration with Te mana o te moana, a South Pacific marine education and conservation foundation.

Hands-on, interactive activities

It is designed to engage children with hands-on, interactive activities aboard and ashore that showcase the South Pacific's natural wonders and cultures. 

'The enriching naturalist-led activities are educational, exciting and, above all, fun,' said Susan Robison, GM sales and marketing, Paul Gauguin Cruises. 'Geared toward children and teens, the program welcomes participation from the whole family to create bonding moments that simply cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world.'

Sea turtle care center, playing 'Survivor' games and more

From visiting a sea turtle care center to playing real-life beach 'Survivor' games, hiking volcanic mountains and snorkeling in pristine lagoons, the program goes far beyond the typical children's cruise programs. Depending on the itinerary, youngsters might explore underwater life, conduct water experiments, create natural jewelry, go on a treasure hunt, learn about Tahitian culture, discover island legends and geology or design a Polynesian tattoo.
